This is one of my dad's altered versions of JC Cake. He is always expected to make it for family gatherings at home and at church. He has made it many different ways and this is the favorite. I guess he's been making this cake for 15 years or more. edited 09/12- note- I just made this today and had to tweak the recipe a bit. Dad is getting old and his directions were minimal. But now I've made it and made the recipe easier to follow.
